Existing assessment and treatment protocols treat the area of pain and if you have a knee pain the knee will be treated. However, the cause of pain is likely to be outside the injured area.
National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) recommends the use of functional kinetic chains to evaluate injures and determine what links of the chain are not functioning properly.
In the last 12 years, I have been studying kinesiology and functional anatomy to develop a better understanding how to assess interconnected joints and muscles outside the area of pain.
For the last 8 years, I have been practicing my findings and they are producing successful outcomes, and help my clients to avoid drugs or surgical intervention.
When I treat a shoulder injury I assess the shoulder blades, shoulder joints, elbow joints and wrists.
